When I became a flight attendant in 2008, I fell head over heels in love with the inspiration that overcomes you when you arrive at a destination and start exploring.

Cities, oceans, parks, museums, architecture, cafes, languages... all of it sparked something inside me that I didn't know was there. It brought me profound gratitude for the planet and our cultures, and for getting to experience the universe at work. Travel made me a better human.

Many of us experience similar feelings of world-love and gratitude when we travel, and I wanted to somehow bring that feeling to life through a boutique that served travel lovers in a more thoughtful way. Connecting travel-lovers with makers doing good things in the world not only connects us all, but it also inspires appreciation for the world - and for each other.

 I'm super passionate about discovering cool + interesting travel items that are really purposeful and that you've probably never seen before; and I buy in small amounts to test quality and collect feedback from our travel-loving community.

I personally inventory the featured maker items (they are all collectors pieces!) and I manage the shipping & delivery of these items so I can guarantee your shopping experience is pleasant. Thank you for visiting! I hope you find the products delightful to receive and use, and in doing so know that collectively - and convectively - we've made the world a little bit of a better place :)
